DianaSimp ,

I’m loving this podcast tailored for women makers!

I love how Katy delivers some amazing stories from makers to showcase how life as a maker can be. These stories are both inspiring and encouraging to keep growing your business.

3etrcchi ,

Wow!

I don’t have a creative vibe in my body, but I am intrigued by these stories of people so unlike me! I sure have tons more respect for small business owners and entrepreneurs, especially women in business. To hear these vastly different perspectives come together to find just how much they have in common is awesome. Keep up the good work!

Con64289 ,

So inspiring!
